Re Maelor’s selected post of the day and the horrendous changes we all face, a wise woman once said to me ‘nothing bad lasts forever’. She was referring to events that do eventually come to an end, we just have to wait them out. Unfortunately, unless we get very serious very quickly, climate change will be the something bad that will last forever.
Re the $444 million given to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, reportedly the 100 page grant contract (contracts for grants won after lengthy application processes are typically 100+ pages) makes no mention of THE major threatening process, climate change. But the Board, with representatives of the fossil fool industry, doesn’t influence the work program? Pull the other one!
Truly it is said’the perfect is the enemy of the good’. Having a deadlock in Parliament on the NEG(ative really) is to continue the impasse we’ve been facing since the CPRS was abandoned as being third or fourth rate at best. We have issues of principle and degree here. A two part process would be to pass it with the current target, as woefully inadequate as it is, then, with it in place, tighten it with more realistic targets as soon as the politics allow (perhaps in the first half of next year).
Maelor is beset by gremlins today, so it’s off to Plan B. Check David Robinson’s work at live.org.au and think about showing up at the climate change forum with Rob Gell moderating a debate between the ex-IPA’s Tim Wilson, current Member for Goldstein and Simon Holmes a Court, an energy activist with a very long list of achievements.
Back on deck after checking out northern parts of this very wide and now much browner land. With the euthanasia debate being given prominence over energy policy, the country will be euthanased. Droughts and high temperatures will finish us off, Turnbull and Leyonhjelm.
